Holiday shop! it is that time of year again sunshine & bikinis

I do realise that it is only March and I won’t be going to the beach until January but if I don’t buy then now then I can never find anything I love. Today I have found so many things that would work  well in Peru that I feel spoilt for choice.

I am afraid I only ever choose bandeau bikinis as I don’t like straps and they suit my shape better.

Also you  can never have too many coverups, I wear mine to breakfast, to the beach for dinner and cocktails so I need a few, although on my last trip I wore a black Seafolly coverup so many times as I love it.

Keeping it chic at the beach with Kayu handwoven bags and clutches…..

I have just discovered Kayu a brand new to Mytheresa and I am already in love the Kahuna bag, it has Lima Dreaming written all over it. (I know I am already here but hey I can keep dreaming) I can see myself carrying it on the daily walk to the beach! (it’s a very short walk) and it would enhance any beach outfit.

The bags are all woven by hand which makes them even more special.

All are available by Kayu at mytheresa.com

Holiday Wardrobe Pieces You Need|Bikinis and Dresses|

Today I have an overwhelming need to lie in the sun so I have been dreaming of being in Lima.

Just to stand on the balcony and look at the ocean would be wonderful, maybe a Bellini in my hand would be nice too!!

These are the pieces I would like in my “Lima Wardrobe” whether I go soon or at christmas. I just love the beach life it is so laid back and all you need are bikini’s and shorts, well nearly!!

I have found  a great piece that would be perfect for my “surfing” days!! You need to look good in water as well as on the beach.

I find nearly all of my favourite beachwear at Heidi Klein and Beachcafe  so I hope you like them too. I have Heidi Klein bikinis in Lima that I have worn for quite a few years now and they still look amazing.

Here is reminder as to why I am day dreaming it is so BEAUTIFUL!
